EVENTS VAPECON, TEXAS | 9-10 APRIL 2016 By Paul Caplin So we travelled from Oklahoma to one of our favourite places in The States, San Antonio! This was the second time we were about to embark on the home of the Alamo, and we were all very excited. Unlike last time, we stayed downtown amongst the thick of it all. We loved the great night life and chatting to friendly people, whilst the amazing river walk and picturesque town, could easily be mistaken for a picture perfect postcard. The convention was in the main centre which was based on San Antonio’s Riverwalk. VapeCon were the hosts this time and wow – what a great job they did. The check-in process was quick and efficient, and upon entry to the main hall we knew we were back in our element. There was the usual mix of lavsmaller booths. There was a definite buzz about the place and a nice steady flow of traffic with people 110 VAPOUROUND MAGAZINE USA coming in from all over. By the end of day one, the place was very busy and large clouds were all that could be seen. This show attracted some great companies, from the usual candidates like Strawberry Queen, EFX Liquids, The Pancake Man and many more, to new companies that are starting to become regulars on the circuit like Naked fish. This fantastic mix of exhibitors ensures the average visitor has a great choice when looking around the show. The entertainment was top notch, with plenty of giveaways and some fantastic competitions, as well as a cloud chasing contest with cash prizes. A selection of top class DJs and MCs entertained visitors and exhibitors alike, who seemed to enjoy a well organised and very successful show.
